    I don't think I've ever seen one. You could always bookmark dictionary.com on your phone and use that in the meantime.

    I changed the name of your thread to match the content so that hopefully you can draw more attention to your request.

    I also very much want a real dictionary app. I still use the Websters Dictionary Palm OS app using Classic. That is the best we have right now.

    The problem with any Website right now for anything is that the Pre cannot correctly enlarge the fonts. What the Pre should do when you enlarge fonts is reformat so that you do not have to constantly pan left and right. Browsers have done this for a decade. Click the View--> Text Size to see how it is supposed to work.

    Instead with the Pre, it is like you are looking through a periscope.

    Maybe one of our ace developers could pop something out?

    A dictionary app is a must have!! I had dictionaries in all my Palm and Treo so it does make sense.

    I also wonder if the limited space that Palm's currently allowing for app storage is a detriment. I know that Evernote is limiting their app for just this reason...

    Type "define:[word]", hit enter.

    See attached.

    This is what the pre is all about. See this. [problem starting with numbers? use a keyword that makes sense (ex: "convert 12 inches to cm" or "convert 4 ils to usd" or "area code 718")
